  • Blacksmith's Den Years of Expertise
  • Ah, another day of fulfilling work.
  • Z
  • zzz
  • zzzzz
  • Go and earn one rupee. Only then will what is mine be yours as well.
  • How can he be so cruel? I've never worked a day in my life!
  • Woah! This is heavy!
  • OH! Thank you so much!
  • Once upon a time, there lived a Blacksmith who worked all his life to provide for his family. Unlike his father, the blacksmith's son was the laziest person in all the land, never working a day in his life.
  • When he realized death was near, the old Blacksmith promised to leave all that he owned to his son, as long as the youth can prove to him that he was able to earn one rupee from his own labour.
  • Ah, now I believe you. Someone else's money you do not care about, but when your money is thrown into the fire it is your turn to cause a tantrum.
  • With his mother's pity, the son spent the day in the mountains with his bread and cheese. At the end of the night, he handed his father the rupee his mother gave to him earlier. His father threw the coin into the fire, knowing his son did not earn it. The next day, the son repeated this, resulting in only more money at the bottom of the hearth. Finally, on the third day, the son went to work, earning the rupee over the course of a week as he lifted boxes and helped strangers.
  • Here lies a blacksmith, husband, and father. "Teach me and I'll remember, involve me and I'll learn"
  • At the end of the week, the son handed the coins he had earned over to his father. Indeed it had equaled one rupee. After he inspected the coins, the Blacksmith threw them all into the fire, just like what he had done twice before.
  • The son hurled himself towards the fire and stuck his hand within it. He searched frantically for his hard earned rupee, burning himself in the process. It is now that the father believed his son and the labor he had endured.
  • One will never find comfort in the belongings of others, but when you work you will earn true happiness that is even more valuable than the money you acquire. The father left for his son these wise words and all that he owned. And so, the son had learned his lesson, one that can only be taught with a rupee earned.
